Farsight Studios announced The Pinball Arcade is now available for Nintendo’s newest platform, the Nintendo Switch. The pinball simulator is free on the Nintendo eShop and includes the Stern table Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.

Unlike Zen Studios’ popular pinball video game series Zen Pinball — which takes an unrealistic approach with its tables, all of which are made specifically for the game — The Pinball Arcade has an authenticity to it, bringing some of the most legendary tables to your television screen.

This includes officially licensed tables from Stern, Bally, Williams, and Gottlieb. Unfortunately, Farsight Studios will be losing its license to produce and sell Bally and Williams tables next month on June 30. If you want some of these tables — which includes The Addams Family which is considered one of the greatest pinball tables ever made — you’ll have to purchase it by the deadline.

The Pinball Arcade is now available for just about every gaming platform since its release in 2012 including PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, Android, iOS, and Nintendo Switch.
